THE STORY

Finnish rapper Mikko Kuoppala (Pyhimys) had a brilliant and well thought out script for this music video, and it was easy to start working on the production together. The plan was to do a music video in a style that has never been done in Finland. 

 

The pre-production was intensive but rewarding. We worked closely with Mikko as well as with the client of the video, representatives from Universal music.

 

The production as a whole was hard work, but we feel that we truly succeeded with this production. We were able to pull off everything that we planned, including 38 celebrity cameos within a 3 minute timespan, five shooting days and more locations that we can even remember. Our team worked hard to do their best and it shows. We also had a lot of help from Mikko and his team and it was an absolute joy to work together. 

 

Gotta say, Mikko & the client were happy.
